Namibia safari experiences promise a wholly-enriching adventure.
When planning a Namibia safari, the images you might find can appear downright otherworldly—incredibly tall sand dunes in hues of red, orange, and yellow; sprawling cracked white earth interrupted by dried, twisting trees; thin scattered bush vegetation with only the faintest hint of wildlife, and virtually zero trace of human influence. This panorama of Namibia presents a vast wilderness that remains largely undiscovered by many travelers to southern Africa. Namibia is easy to access through South Africa, and a Namibia safari is something that every enthusiastic safari-goer simply must experience for themselves. You will discover a place that is harsh and unforgiving, but no survival skills are necessary when traveling with Ker & Downey—just bring a healthy sense of adventure and a passion to see one of the world’s last untouched wildernesses.
Within the many isolated natural regions, wildlife can thrive without the presence of manmade threats. Black rhinoceros, desert-adapted elephant, Hartmann’s mountain zebra, and healthy populations of plains game coexist with other curious small mammals, like the bat-eared fox and honey badger. The recent documentary Vanishing Kings follows the challenges faced by the last desert-adapted lions of Namibia, a wonderful window into this world. Game drives are a rewarding challenge, and the guides and trackers here are keenly trained to notice even slight clues of wildlife nearby.
As varied as the landscapes, the cultural history of Namibia is equally intriguing. Find German and British colonial towns juxtaposed with ancient cultures. This includes the Himba culture, survivors of some of the most rugged country in the world, and the San Bushmen who made the famous etchings into the granite at Brandberg and Twyfelfontein.
A Namibia safari with Ker & Downey is an enriching discovery of the beauty of Namibia, with ancient sand dunes, legendary shipwrecks on the Skeleton Coast, and the big game of the numerous national parks and protected reserves all yours to treasure.
